Yes, I originally wanted to use it, but noticed that its tests are currently
failing (possibly due to a bug in Dancer2 itself):


I ended up resorting to use https://metacpan.org/pod/Dancer::Plugin::REST with
Dancer v1 instead for my use case. Furthermore, I was told that it's not really
needed because you can encode the JSON yourself explicitly.
